party rally, real or imagined. real or imagined, is covered by the lame stream media, but flag burning at an antiwar rally isn't covered. and, you know, i have been thinking about well, why is this? well, because these fringe events at tea party rallies, whether they are nasty signs or these alleged shouting of racial slurs, which i am convinced at this point never happened, this fits into the narrative of most mainstream news reporters that the tea party people are not too smart, think are bigots. so, when you see a nasty sign, which i'm against and you are against, when you see one of these signs, they report it as if not typical, certainly not unusual. but when you see the flag burning and just so you know my take on this, while i'm against flag burning it is protected speech by the first amendment. that's not the point though.
